      I agree with the previous poster. This town has an extremely high amount of crime. I heard the stories about Dover when I lived in another state with the drugs, home invasions and other violent crime. I make sure the time in Dover is in the winter and daytime. Stay away from the city.

      I had previously worked in Dover. I would not recommend working or living in this area. The crime rate is off the charts. Their crime rate is 86% higher, than the rest of the country. That's almost double. Unbelievable..Dover police do their best, there's only so much crime they can prevent. Dover's crime rate is 80% higher than the rest of Delaware. Steer clear of this place. There is nothing to see or do, anyhow. Nothing worth risking my life over.There's plenty of much nicer places to live.

      I have lived in Dover, Delaware for my whole life. I was born and raised there and I learned very valuable lifelong lessons from the people and the culture of my community. The friendly atmosphere and warm people make this a great place to not only live in but also to visit. People in Dover really seem to have positive attitudes and we are so friendly.

      There are so many historical sites and attractions to explore in my Dover that you won't know where to begin. The rich history of the old buildings in downtown Dover are amazing. There is so much to see and learn for everyone who visits here. The city government is great in my opinion. They really seem to care about the citizens of the city and they are prompt about getting things done. We have tons of great restaurants to dine in and lots of stores for those who enjoy shopping like the Dover Mall. The Nascar raceway is one of the biggest attractions in Dover in June and in September and you should really check it out if you are here. I like the convenient area which makes traveling fast and easy.
